TIFF Scoop & Teasers

The pre-festival scoop

I just got back from a media preview of the Tasemakers lounge. It was odd to see the Intercontinental Hotel, home to much of the festival hoopla, so calm. It definitely won’t be that way tomorrow when the festival officially kicks off. Highlights from the goody bag I picked up? Some more Bamjamz organic loungewear (sold at Holt Renfrew) to add to my collection and Joe Fresh fall makeup essentials, including a pewter colour eye pencil.

 I’ve also been attending a slew of pre-screening. I’m under a strict muzzle order for now so I can’t go into details on my favourites. But I’ll give you a clue: one of my top picks is Canadian. Click here to checkout this year’s lineup—it’s not too late to pick up some tickets.
